Bus Safety

We are ALL partners in Bus Safety!

Safety Tips for Parents:

  • PARENTS are responsible for getting their child(ren) to and from the bus stop safely!
  • Clothing can get caught! Jacket and sweatshirt drawstrings, backpack straps, scarves and loose clothing may present a danger if they become entangled as a child gets on or off the bus.
  • Instruct your child(ren) to remain seated while on the bus and avoid horseplay or being exceptionally noisy.
  • STOP for school buses with red lights flashing, even in the school parking lot!
Safety Tips for Students:

  • Be on time.
  • Never run to or from the bus.
  • Stand well back from the curb.
  • Stay in your seat. Keep the aisles clear and keep heads and arms inside windows.
  • ALWAYS obey the driver.
  • Keep the noise level down and avoid distracting the driver.
  • Wait for the driver’s signal before crossing.
  • Never bend down near or under the bus.
  • Cross at least 10 feet in front of the bus.
  • ALWAYS check for traffic both ways before crossing.
